3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm.
Almost black body, with a big, not very stable, frothy, dark beige to brown head.
Aroma of melting dark chocolate, nuts, some coffee, some spices.
Taste follows this, with some more dark fruits and slight dry wood.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes alcohol warming, a bit astringent, roasty, wooden, with dark chocolate, coffee and dark fruits.
Tasty! Like a roasty coffee with liquid bitter chocolate. Pretty filling, but well balanced and quite smooth to drink. A comfortable, warming winter ale!
